Holiday on my Mind

Aren’t we all lucky to be born in a century when travel is accessible to more and more people? I moved away from home, away from all the dear ones, to the other corner of the continent at age 18 with one purpose: to travel the world. I can’t imagine living in a single corner of the universe anymore and it is weird to me when people don’t understand why. Check out the list below. Do you feel the same way?

The Challenges of Being a Travel Blogger

Holiday on my Mind

Being a travel blogger is not always as glamorous as portrayed on Pinterest or Instagram. And don’t get me wrong, I love being a travel blogger with its ups and downs but in case you are thinking about making a debut in the world of travel blogging, here are some things you need to know…

Of course earning some sort of income from writing is the dream of every blogger but it’s like a lottery in a way: you have to put everything into it, your time, your energy, your effort, your money and hope for the best.
